All storm warnings lowered as Igme exits PH
MANILA, Philippines–All public storm warning signals were lowered as typhoon Igme moved further away from the country, the state weather bureau said Tuesday.
As of 4p.m. Igme, which re-entered the Philippine territory, was seen 415km north northeast of Basco in Batanes, packing maximum sustained winds of 110kph near the center and gustiness of up to 140 kph, the Philippine Atmospheric Geophysical and Astronomical Services said.
Meanwhile, southwest monsoon will affect Luzon. It will experience mostly cloudy skies with scattered rainshowers and thunderstorms becoming cloudy with widespread rains over the western sections of northern and Central Luzon which may trigger flashfloods and landslides.
The rest of the country will be partly cloudy to cloudy with isolated rainshowers or thunderstorms, Pagasa said.
Moderate to strong winds blowing from the southwest will prevail over Luzon and Visayas and the coastal waters along these areas will be moderate to rough. Elsewhere, winds will be light to moderate coming from the south to southwest with slight to moderate seas.
